After an arrest for misdemeanor DUI, the arraignment is the first hearing
that you will need appear in court. The main purpose of a DUI arraignment
is to inform you of the charges and allow you to enter a plea.
You don’t know what can happen at this hearing and issues may come
up that require the skill and knowledge of the law and the courts only
an experienced criminal defense attorney can provide.
Some issues that may arise are:
- Should a plea of not guilty be entered or should the arraignment be continued?
- At what amount should bail be set?
- Should the court allow you to drive a motor vehicle while out on bail?
- Should a continuance beyond your speedy trial right be requested, and if
so for how long?
